Cardi B Hits Back At 'Racist' And 'Fat Phobic' Trolls After Lizzo's Tearful Instagram Live
| Last updated
The pair released a song last week, titled 'Rumours'.
The 'Juice' singer broke down in tears on Instagram Live and revealed the racial and body shaming abuse she has been receiving on social media.
She said: "Sometimes I just feel like the world don't love me back.
"[Despite] the positive energy you put into the world, you're still going to have people who have something mean to say about you.
"And for the most part it doesn't hurt my feelings, I don't care.
"I just think when I'm working this hard, my tolerance gets lower, my patience is lower. I'm more sensitive, and it gets to me."
Shortly after, New York rapper Cardi B took to Twitter to stand by her fellow artist.
She said: "When you stand up for yourself they claim you're problematic & sensitive.
"When you don't they tear you apart until you crying like this.
"Whether you skinny, big, plastic. Remember these are nerds looking at the popular table."
In a following tweet she added: "'Rumors' is doing great. Stop trying to say the song is flopping to dismiss a woman emotions on bullying or acting like they need sympathy.
"The song is top 10 on all platforms. Body shaming and callin her mammy is mean & racist as f***."
Twitter users were quick to voice their opinion.
One user said: "Body shaming is a very hard issue to handle.
"I'm fighting that right now and I'm constantly trying to look past my imperfections. It sends you into a depression that is also hard to fight."
A second user added: "This may be an unpopular opinion, but these artists need to hire teams to run their social media accounts and get off these apps!
"Reading troll comments is counterproductive and serves no purpose! Find other ways to communicate with true fans. this is just dumb."
Whilst a final user concluded: "And anyway being big or skinny people still wanna say trash and judge... we didn't creat ourselves for God sake people stop the racism... it's disgusting, focus on making yourself better before pointing a finger at others."
